's. there has been a loss here in the senate. the senator from the hawaii, daniel inouye at 88 years old passed away yesterday. that will likely cause interruption for a few days for memorial services next couple weeks. whether for the president and most members of congress to go to hawaii or for the late senator to lie in state at the capitol, all things would cut up more time, meaning in all likelihood, if they find an agreement that could be considered real they would have to give themselves a little bit of overtime and pass one of the legislative vehicles that essentially stops the clock to take it into new year's. that was not the plan. that is why they put together what was called sequester so they would be forced to put a legislative gun to their heads to make a deal. looks like they may give themselves a little bit of after school study time. bill: we'll see how that pays off. carl cameron leading our coverage. thank you, sir. martha: the bottom line really does this deal begin to address the economic problems that exist in this country? stuart varney, the anchor of "varney & company" o

is it's less than two weeks until the new year, the president's about to leave for hawaii in less than 15 minutes he leaves the white house, soledad. and congress is going to be gone for christmas too. and there is no more effective motivator for capitol hill than pressure and they have it right now. what the president has done today is he's laid out a scaled-down version of a fiscal cliff deal. you know, keeping tax cuts in place for 98% of americans, extending unemployment insurance, and laying out a plan, a down payment on a promise to do entitlement reform. and then he also made a pitch to the american people to only blame republicans frls no deal. so it's a two-pronged attack that he makes right before taking off on vacation. so right now, you know, the plan is basically to keep the pressure on. and we know both sides are planning to come back at some point after christmas and try to get something worked out. but no overt optimism coming really from the aides on either side right now. and we'll see, soledad. i'll tell you, folks right now are planning to make new year's eve plans

both be blamed for. that's why we have the president flying back from hawaii. that's why we have republicans coming in on sunday even though neither side expects it to change any. the great line in this story, the talking bint it they have is the lines of communication remain open, but all are reporting that the lines of communication may remain open but they're not saying anything. they're negotiating out loud. it's like when you send an e-mail and put your boss on it or copy the whole office. you're not trying to persuade but make your point. >> i'll never do that. richard wolf, are you still awake down there. >> i am. i go to starbucks. >> let me ask you this unearned sense of optimism that seeps out between talk of going over the cliff. we'll go over the cliff but get a deal done within the next two weeks after january 1st. why am i thinking maybe they won't get a deal done? >> right. why? because you watched these idiots try to come up with a deal sore. they didn't have an agreement with the recovery act and republicans didn't want to step up then. we're talking about two se
